“If the whole night was an exercise in melting the social anxiety of a large group of strangers, then it worked as well as any drug – we could have known each other for a decade rather than an hour … We were more than active participants in the experience, we were the experience.” The Quietus

“Theatre has a tendency to make people feel trapped in seats, like they can’t make a sound or go to the toilet, but there was freedom for the duration of the show to leave the set and go to the bar, to explore the various spaces in the party, to talk to your friends, and to feel part of something rather than distant from an elitist piece of theatre. … I found it hard to join in with the ending as I was so astounded by how clever it was. … It is this sort of writing, that experiments with the roles of the audience and inanimate objects that only comes from a very talented and imaginative writer such as Andy.” RMC Media
